Bedford corduroy is a sturdy, tightly woven fabric with a vertically corded texture. Because of its durability, Bedford corduroy is usually found in shooting wear or casual pants. It is uncertain whether Bedford corduroy was named after Bedford, England or New Bedford, Massachusetts, because both cities claim to have coined the term and have been involved in the manufacturing of textiles since the 19th century.
